Sustainable Solutions for a Greener World

Mission

Community Compost Solutions is a social enterprise with the mission of diverting organic matter from landfill and creating nutrient rich soil. 

 

We educate and promote the installation of appropriate micro-scale composting in small businesses, community organisations, schools and residences in East Sussex. We collect organic waste and turn it into earthly treasure. We are developing a local grass-roots model of a sustainable practise that can be easily replicated in other communities. 

Vision

There will be a greater knowledge and appreciation for the value of organic matter in the process of making soil from waste.

 

Children and adults will be accustomed to effectively identifying and utilising compost materials reducing the amount of waste incinerated or placed in landfills and increasing the production of nutrient rich soil.

Combatting Climate Change

Composting is a natural process, but the conditions have to be right to create the right mix of materials and aeration. That's why the same materials will not compost when dumped in landfill but expel harmful gases and toxic waste by-products. 

We save over 600kg of CO2e emissions by composting vs landfill per tonne.

 

The world will benefit from reduced carbon emissions and the community will benefit from the availability of soil enrichment to grow more food locally. We provide a means for local entities to productively utilise their organic waste and avoid the costs involved in having it transported elsewhere.

Soil & Sustainability

Composting has huge benefits for soil and the environment.

Around 40% of organic waste is currently sent to a landfill or an incinerator where an inefficient breakdown process leads to harmful greenhouse emissions.  Together, we can turn this waste into “black gold,” nutrient-rich soil - a valuable resource for plants and gardens.

By composting organic waste and returning it to the soil we are playing our part in the fight against the climate crisis.

Compost produced from our sites is used for local growing projects and to enhance community green spaces. This is a circular economy – local food waste gets converted into compost and then used to grow more food.  Educating people to compost and making it practically feasible to accomplish can only benefit our long-term sustainable future.
